The tinted leaves ot the'forest trees were never handsomer than DOW. THE speculators of Wall street were scared yesterday by rumor of war with Spain and stocks slumped. The bulls are very timid when tee bears start a war cry. MARK BANNA'S troubles have just begun. He Is now held responsible for the disaster In Ohio and at least, a hsif score of the newly elected Republican members of the legislature declare they will not vote to return to the SENATOK GGKMAS'S magnificent fight against the Force bill a few years ago won for him the gratitude of the country. But his services have been forgotten by bis Maryland constituents. His defeat for re-election to the senate Is due to Democratic opposition in Baltimore, led by the Baltimore Sun. f Connectlcut.savs tbere will be no currency legislation at the coming session of congress. In hie opinion there is a strong majority iu the senate opposed to the single gold standard and that it would be a waste of time to attempt to secure currency legislation on the lines proposed by Secretary Gage. SINCE the election last fall, Chicago, Evansvllle, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo have all gone Democratic. Baltimore is the only city that has held to the record made last fall. The cities were the Republican strongholds a year ago. Is it possible that prosperity has not been restored to the cities? _ SENATOR WOLCOTT returned Irpm Europe yesterday. He refused to say anything concerning the work of the monetary commission. It Is likely that he will submit his views to congress when it meets next month. He is still a senator from the state of Colorado, and his views upon the currency question will be awaited with Interest. GEN, MILES warts the new post- office building at Chicago to be provided with gatlicg guns. Here Is a pointer for Governor Mount. He might arrange to fortify our jails •with, gatling guns to prevent lyuch- Ings. But what are we coming.to anyway that such a proposition as that our public buildings should be fortified, Is, broached? HENRY WATTEKSON says he a;- oepts the Vote- of Kentucky as the eipressed will cf the Demucrauc majority and will hereafter oe foutfd fighting within the party ranks. He declares that he Is still a Democrat and that he will hereafter in the character of a private soldier in the ranks contribute whatever he is able to the ascertainment and -"indication of truth. THE country has heard so much about "sound money" that a great deal is expected of congress when it convenes next month. If to secure "sound money" millions of gold bonds must be issued, let congress proceed to provide the remedy. Nothing but gold bonds and plenty ot them will satisfy the advocates of "sound money." If our money was unsound last year it is still unsound for no changes have been made. THE sentiment In favor of bimetallism In England was shown In the result of an election held in Lancaster, England, last thursday, when the liberal candidate overcome a majority of S65 given the conservate candidate at a previous election and secured a majority of 300. A cable dUpttch says: The refusal of the government to take any definite step to meet the proposals of the American and French governments was used against Mr. Mitchell, the conservative candidate, although at all his meetings he expressed hlmsell as strongly in favor of bimetallism, and advanced the opinion that the prevailing bad condition of the cotton trade Is largely due to the depreciation of silver, which, he said, had handicapped'Lan- cashire trade to the extent of 30 per cent- THE shooting affray which occurred in this city last Thursday was a deplorable affair.

A frenxy of rage dethroned reason; cast aside rear and prompted murder. The lesson that tnls deplorable affair teaches should be heeded. It teaches that men £ possessed of vicious passions should seek to govern them and that evil habit* should be avoided. The man, who, naturally impulsive, governs himself Is worthy of praise and the man, who, tempted, avoids evil ways does a service to himself, to his family and to society. Man's greatest triumph In life lies In L successful avoidance of evil. The Union Pacific railroad on whick. _ the government holds a mortgage con-. gists of nvo distinct properties, tbej main line and its Kansas branch, known' as the Kansas Pacific rail-way. The original intention of the government was to sell the two properties separately —the Union Pacific Nov. 2. the Kansas Pacific Nov. 5. In the sale which has been postponed to Dec. 15 the Kansas Pacific will bo disposed of. The reorganization committee, representing the present, management of the road, desired to obtain possession of the Union Pacific, but does not want the Kansas Pacific- The American oyster is moving rap- Idly into favor with the British, along Tvith American wheat and beef. More than 400 barrels of noble Bine Points have already been shipped from Long Island across the Atlantic this season.

Brazil is going to borrow money from an association of London bankers to meet h«r public expenses. Government tj is extending rapidly. Taku Inlet Railroad. If preparations progress as expected, ground will be broken for^the first Alaskan railroad by Jan. 1. The road will connect Junean with Lake Teslin, which is the source of the great Yukon. A surveying party at the head of which was Professor William A. Pratt examined the routeTiuring the summer. The professor has reported in favor of a road which, beginning at the Taku inlet, shall follow tb6 course of the Taku river up toward its source 51 miles. A 1 Tailroad can be constructed along the banks oi -..- Taku without trouble. A number o: creeks and rivers will have to be crossed, and over the Clocloheen a bridge 1,000 feet long will be needed, but the sand and gravel of the bed of that stream will make the construction easy , The route in a general way will follow the line of various small rivers, among them the Silver Salmon, Sinoakaheen and Nakana- This - ! make the grading comparatively u^sy. even through the pass in the Pitcher mountains. None of the mountain passes are more difficult to cross than those of the Alle- ghanies. The leading idea is by a short railway line to connect the Pacific ocean at Jnnean with the navigable waters of the Yukon river. Freight and passengers can then be transferred from steam er to railway cars at Juneau and be whirled up to the Yukon river, where they will be re-embarked and sent down the river. Thus the heavy laden boats will steam down stream instead of up to points along the great river. One peculiarity, of the region surveyed for the railway line is that there i» no great amount of snow inland. On the coast there are tremendous snows, which remain on the ground all winter to ft depth of sir feet As soon, however, aa the first range of mountains is crossed the country becomes drier. The moisture is precipitated on the west •ide of the mountains, as in the Rookie* leaving the eastern slope* dry.

Nov. li. — There is a. serious legal controversy among the supervisors of election of Somerset county over the vote cast on Tuesday, J. S. Stanford, the Democratic member, having refused to sign the certificates of election because of certain irregularities in the tally sheets and ballots, in that the judges of election in several instances failed to sign the former, and that at !ea«t. 500 of the latter were couiued in spite of the fac: that they were not indorsed with trv initials of one of the judges as required by iav. The Republican supervisors, upon the advice of coursel, decided to disregard these apparent irregularities, whereupon Stanford, who had been elected secretary of the board, withdrew. The other two then reorganized the board and issued subpoenaes to. the judges and clerks of the various precincts to appear before them on Monday to make necessary corrections ir: the tally sheets. Stanford thereupon entered a protest, claiming that the whole course of the board islllegal, and the question is nicely to be taken into the, courts, where an attempt may be made to throw out: the unmarked ballcs and reverse the result cf the late election. _ Colorado I* Populist-Democratic.

Handball is imported from Ireland. It calls for more exertion than bowling, and brings into activity noC only every uiusclo Of the human frame, but also the mental faculties. The «ame is played in a small court with walls on all four sides. Any large room will do. Twenty-one points is a score, and the player first ruakiug that number is the winner. There is a chalk line on the floor about SO feet from the target wall. The players toss up to decide who is to serve the ball. This is !in ad- Tantage, for the server has it in his power to serve the ball in a manner to puzzle his opponent. He stands inside thechiill; line, bounds the ball on the Uoor. and, mi the rebound strikes it a quick ':;u-d blow. Bending it against the rear \ J| Tne lower down the ball strikes tho i much the more difficult is it for the opponent to strike it on the rebound After the first blow the ball may be hurled against any of the four wails. OIK' miss -or, allowing the ball to rebound twice puts out the opponent, and trie other takes an inning. The ball is kept in a rapid, continuous flight through the air from the .palms of the player's hands to the walls. It is permissible after the first palm blow to kick it with the foot, but tho ball must not touch the clothing. The ball is of rubber, covered with horsehide and tightly bound with cotton thread. It is very hard and about 2>i inches in diameter. A beginner at the game finds the impact of the ball against his palms anything but pleasant at first, and after the first game one is likely to find the bones of his hand rather sore. It is easy to learn the points. The chief things to learn are physical alacrity and mental alertness. European C It seems r-hat Europe has no confideL. •» in us.
